The military also simultaneously set, Boissor (Bou Ba), Aissor (Singa Prang), Ahmadiya (Kra Chaung), on fire in 10 AM, with the estimation of 80 houses were brought down to ashes including livestock.

When Rohingya villagers from Boissor were fleeing to neighboouring villages via Furma river, the small boat overturned missing three children.

At least 100 innocent Rohingya villagers believed to be killed in the fires. At least in 30 more villages and hamlets were set fire on August 26th and 27th 2017, during raids by the military and Rakhine extremists leaving thousands of Rohingya stranded and fearful under the open sky.

Rohingya are now in a dire situation, with shortage of food, medicine, and shelter they attempt to hide from the terror inflicted by the Myanmar military amidst frequent heavy rains.

Rohingya civilians request the United Nations, the European Union, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, the members of ASEAN, the neighboring countries – Bangladesh, Indian and China, and the international community to promptly act upon “the Responsibility to Protect” and push Myanmar to make serious and committed steps to quell the current onslaught and continued persecution of Rohingyas in Rakhine State, Myanmar.
